Sydney 1R: Jankovic def. Hingis 6-4, 4-6, 6-3

Hingis got beaten again in the first round like last year.

Hingis still cannot hang with the power-hitters.

Congrats Jelena. Good win.

Jelena should have had this in two sets. Glad she won.

Okay. Has anyone wasted as many opportunities as Hingis did here Wasted around 10 break points in the second set, more in the third and tons of game points in the last game Really frustrating, at least she fought, but again fails to win a tight match. As usual...

Jankovic = what 2006/2007 Hingis should be...

Complete with powderpuff choking when serving for the match.

Tough opener Martina Work hard to prepare for the AO JJ is definitely still on the rise, I'm interested to see how high she can climb in the ranks with so little to defend in the early stages of the year...

I'm really happy for Jelena, kinda sad for Martina since I like both but the match looked great.

Side note to the thread starter, review your definition of an ass-whipping.
